Keiser University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (210)
I was college student at Keiser and was very happy with the program until I got orders to deploy. I am an Army reservist, I submitted my orders and requested a deferment for military reasons directly from the Dean and was granted one. While in Afghanistan, my power of attorney informed me that keiser, instead of honoring my differment, had placed me in collections for my student loans. I expected much more from a yellow ribbon school. If you are in the military, I would never recommend them.
This University is excellent. The program is complete. The teachers are amazing. My experience is excellent. The online program es excellent too. Keiser University is amazing collage for all students. In Three years I complete my bachelor degree, in Business administration, that amazing!
I thought this school was going to be a good choice at first but now I am looking for a school to transfer to instead. They make this school sound like it is going to work well with your work life or family life but in reality they don't. You are better off going to another school. I have had issues with professors marking me absent while I was in class, failing to put my homework in the grade book and claiming I was not there nor turned in said assignments. The Dean takes sides with the instructors more so than the students just because "Nobody has had a problem with our instructors! Only you!" and makes you feel like you can't accomplish or pass the class. No support for students, at all. It's expensive/ If I am paying way more than another campus, my teachers should be phenomenal, the school should care and HELP YOU SUCCEED. Not sit back and watch you fail with a smile on their face... Not all instructors and staff are bad though, there are some instructors who will help you pass the class even if they have to drag you over the finish line. Some people on the staff are pretty excellent as well.
don't go, go somewhere else. this school rips you off, charges way more than other schools do does not care if you succeed or not. just wants your money. they even change your grades just so you have to retake the class so you have to pay more money to them they are crooks
If you are a working adult and have a family please do not choose this school or program. The instructors are facilitators, not instructors. Many instructors are here for the paycheck, not because they like teaching. Classwork is over and beyond the amount expected from a school that states it caters to working adults with families. You have an average of 3 long papers a week without support from the instructor. There are no online lectures, simply discussions and several assignments. While I made A's in the classes, I nearly killed myself doing so. I should have simply gone to UF face to face. I felt this online program would make it easier to attend a graduate program, but this school does not stand by what was stated that the school works with you. I expected hard work with the program, but you really don't learn from the program because you are too tired to learn or the instructor does not share their knowledge. I actually had an instructor tell me "I don't teach, I just grade your assignments." Yeah, it was too late for me, but I had hope. Run and pick a school that actually appreciates you as a student.
The university prepares you well for the real world and for national boards. The instructors are knowledgeable and approachable. The program is hard but if you put in the work you can do it. Would recommend the nursing program to anyone looking to go into this exiting career.
The classes are very fast paced, you have to read sometimes 5 chapters in a week for a class. Luckily, you only take one class at a time, so you can focus on your class for a month. If you are not doing homework every single day, you will have a problem. Most teachers are willing to work with you if you have something that prevents you from doing your homework, but you must have a good excuse. The teachers are willing to look out for you if you do the work and participate. While I loved many of my teachers, there were others that just shouldn't be a teacher anymore. They are clearly burnt out and are not enthused about their subject anymore. Some of my professors acted like they didn't know their topic, and one or two didn't know how to use a camera/microphone! I had to email professors of problems with the material several times over the course of my degree. I had to correct several tests by emailing the professor, and letting them know that the book answer was different than the test. Luckily, they were always willing to fix the grade, and let Keiser know that the tests were wrong. The teachers don't make the tests, which are apparently standard for each class. The worst experience I had was a professor that told us in week 1 that he wasn't our teacher, and we didn't have a "teacher" until week 3 when he was told he WAS our teacher, and needed to teach something. He didn't actually teach the class at all! He canceled every single live chat the entire time I had him. I had this stupid teacher twice, and learned NOTHING from him. The IT classes: The Microsoft Labs are HORRIBLE. They often don't work properly. You also have to use IE not Edge/Chrome/Firefox in order to do them right, and a lot of stuff STILL doesn't work properly. A lot of times, it seemed like we were going over the same class with a different book/teacher. Of course, considering sometimes it was hard to learn the topic in the first class, it was kind of nice to have a repeat however, you had to pay for the same class twice. This school is mainly teaching yourself. If you can't teach yourself, or learn from a book, you might have a problem. Many of the teachers don't really do the live chats like you probably need. Many of them do try very hard to be helpful and make sure their students learn something. However, like any college, some just don't care. Overall, my experience was positive. However, there are times where I feel like I spent two years learning nothing that can help me further my career in the computer field.
At Keiser you will not be given correct information about the cost of the school. For reference to anyone who questions the cost seeing multiple people on here saying "yes it is expensive but..." let me clarify. 7 months at Keiser cost me over 18,000$ The classes are a month long, if the class moves slow and you do not complete all of the chapter requirements, it doesn't matter. You will simply receive credits for that class, and continue, graduating without proper education or the knowledge necessary for your degree. How great is that?! A minimum of 48,000$ for an associates degree and you don't have an associates level knowledge. I cannot and will not stress enough to anyone considering this route for your education, do not do it. A community college is better equipped, cheaper, and will tell you their cost upfront. This school is awful. I would not wish the financial strain they put on their students to anyone. It is simply not worth it. To pay this much for an education, but you should be getting a quality education for this price, and you're not.
Do not go to Keiser Orlando for nursing unless you want to spend more money than any person should have to for the privilege of teaching yourself. The instructors spend too much time talking about personal experiences and not teaching the subject material. If they cannot answer your question they will tell you to look in the book and find out for yourself. When you find that they give information contrary to accepted practice they will tell you to just accept what they say, even if the information is contrary to ATI which they treat as the God of nursing. Grading is done by some instructors based on making themselves look better like taking tests then getting into groups to correct the test using books and internet then turning them in for grades while in class.
This school is amazing. Beyond the wonderful features they offer as a student, the staff was always helpful and encouraging, even when I would get frustrated the professors assisted with patience and thorough explanations. I managed to get a 4.0 gpa thanks to the feedback from the professors when grading. They have so many people and resources to assist you, it would be difficult to fail.
